The Supreme Council for Sharia in Nigeria on Sunday threatened that Muslims would rather go to war than give up on the current move by the Central Bank of Nigeria to promote Islamic banks in the country.

The SCSN also warned Christian clerics to stop disturbing Muslims, whom it said had received enough abuses since the controversial banking system came to the front burner of national discourse.

Vowing that Muslims would defend the implementation of the Islamic banking system (also known as non-interest banking), “with the last drop of their blood,” the council also urged the Federal Government to call Christian leaders to order.

The SCSN President, Dr. Ibrahim Datti Ahmad, read a statement issued at the end of a meeting of the council to journalists at the Arewa House, Kaduna.

The council said, “Jaiz bank has come to be and there is nothing they (Christian leaders) can do about it and if we have to go to war on this, we’ll go to war.

“Let those wearing cassocks stop disturbing our peace. Gentlemen (journalists), being peaceful doesn’t mean we are cowards. We warn them to stop disturbing our peace if they want us to live together in Nigeria. Everybody can go his way; we don’t have to live together. We can’t live under people dictating to us how we should live our lives even within the laws of the country.

“Whatever they call themselves, whether archbishops, priests or whatever they are, let them stop disturbing our lives. We have had enough; let the government warn them because these abuses are enough. We have been patient but there is a limit to what we can take. On this Jaiz bank, there is no going back. Everything has been done according to the law.

“We’ll meet fire with fire if they make the Jaiz bank impossible. Let them leave us alone. If they want us to live in Nigeria peacefully as we want to do, then let them respect our rights as we concede to them their own rights.”

It added that if Christians wanted a bank to serve their interest, they were free to ask the CBN for one instead of opposing the proposed Islamic banking which “is operational in the United Kingdom and other Christian-dominated countries.”

The council added that the Jaiz bank had assured that it would commence operations in Nigeria in September with three branches in Abuja, Kaduna and Kano.

The SCSN said,“We are very happy that with a lot of efforts Jaiz bank has now become a reality. The company owning Jaiz has assured us that the bank is coming in September and they have assured us that they will be starting with three branches in three towns, namely Abuja, Kaduna and Kano.

“And they will continue to open the branches rapidly thereafter. We are also aware of the amount of noise and nonsense we hear from the Christian leaders, some of whom are so ignorant.

“They think they can blackmail the government, the CBN or the Muslim ummah to abandon the project. We want to assure them that nothing can stop the Jaiz bank from coming into being because it’s being brought in according to the laws of Nigeria. There is nothing illegal about it.

“If they have a Christian bank that they want to establish, they have the freedom to bring it to the CBN and if they can prove their case, a Christian bank will be opened.

“We, the Muslims of this country, are fed up and tired of the vituperations of the CAN (Christian Association of Nigeria). They feel they can dictate to the Muslims, even on how we should live our lives.

“And we are warning the government not to listen to them because there is a limit to the amount of nonsense we can take. We are the majority in this country, whether the Christians like it or not.

The Sharia Council also alleged that the post-presidential election riots in Kaduna and other parts of the North were premeditated in Southern Kaduna long before the conduct of the polls.

Efforts made by our correspondent to get the reaction of the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor, were abortive, as he was said to be out of the country.

The SCSN also faulted the manner in which the crisis was handled by the Federal and state governments, alleging that a curfew had been imposed on the northern part of the state while the southern part remained free.

It said, “This reality is supported by the fact that Southern Kaduna Muslims were massacred even before the election results were announced. Whatever happened was a reaction thereto. The refugees were left to cater for themselves. In fact, most of them were compelled to leave the camp.

“The government must restore people’s freedom, compensate them fully and return them to their homes.”

The council also spoke on the security challenge in the country, especially in Borno State, saying that “the activities of the Joint Task Force in Maiduguri were most unfortunate.”

It accused the JTF of “using an unbalanced force in its attempt to restore peace and order to Borno State.”

Hmm... all I know is that the government should let peace reign in this country. As long as this is not bringing any harm to people, I think they should let it be. We should be promoting peace not looking for another war abeg.

Why must every of their talk be threat of war, war, war... Majority indeed.

The muslims always wants to enforce their will on christains while they themselves cannot allow christains to do the same on muslims. They always believed that they are wiser than Christian with their stupid way of thinking. My question for those muslims yearning to establish islamic banking in Nigeria is: "Can the same muslims allow the establishment of Christain banking too, especially in the muslim countries without being seen as infidel banking"?. Now, you should use your tongue and count your teeth. Not only that, Islamic banking will be seen as an alternative in looting and laundary nigerian public fund by the leaders to Dubia and other islamic countries without trace, and again, it will be a perfect way to sponsor terrorist groups operating in Nigeria by Arab countries and their terrorist citizens who hate to see nigeria utilize its resource money well in developing nigeria. This is the reasons why every christain in Nigeria including reasonable muslims should stand up and reject this cunning Islamic banking in Nigeria.

There shall be NO WAR INSHA ALLAH but let the interest free banking be for progress's sake. It causes no harm to anyone. United State is fully practicing it, United Kingdom and France are into disputes as who shall become the leading nation on Islamic Banking system, why Nigeria? Why only in Nigeria where the interest free banking will cause trouble? LET PEACE REIGN IN NIGERIA. Let everyone participate in promoting out national interests in PEACE and humility.

You are biased my brother. I TRULY HEARD IT WITH MY OWN EARS DURING THE BBC HAUSA RADIO SERVICES. I can really not repeat what they have been saying during the interview with BBC correspondent. I AM SERIOUS ABOUT THIS. Look! I do not like what has been happening in Nigeria and on NP in particular, but sometimes condition necessitates me to retaliate to some insults and abuses. Had it been we have been treating one another fairly, I would not have said some things that I have said here. But sometimes people have to be paid with their own coins. Lets treat ourselves fairly. If not... it will continue like that and it is taking us nowhere. Believe me!
